Diane has built up a great network and even better rapport with 7 local primary schools and one secondary school. This :

  • provides exercise in curriculum time
  • teaches hand/eye coordination and racket skills at an early age
  • allows identification of talented youngsters early on
  • offers a pathway into fuller coaching opportunities at a friendly local club

Throughout the year, expect more coaching opportunities to be publicised via the website and club emails – there’ll be something for everyone, so please support our coaches. Application forms can be obtained from our Download Centre here.
